The Himalayan University Consortium (HUC) – an Initiative under ICIMOD’s regional programme on Mountain Knowledge and Action Networks (MKAN) – has its mandate in developing an effective, sustainable network of universities in the HKH, in collaboration with academic, research and knowledge generating and exchange institutions both within and outside the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region.

HUC is hosting an inception meeting for the Sustainable Mountain Development Curriculum-Building Task Force and the Thematic Working Group Task Force in Punakha, Bhutan, from 19 to 21 June 2019. It will be the first meeting of the core members of the Curriculum Task Force. The aim of the meeting is to discuss and develop the objectives, scope, and planned outputs of the Task Force and develop an outline of the SMD Curriculum-Building Strategy Paper and Plan of Work and delineate responsibilities to refine the paper, to be presented to the HUC General Assembly for approval. The reconnaissance meeting is being funded and organized by HUC–ICIMOD and hosted by the Royal University of Bhutan (RUB).
